ISLAMABAD - Most of the traders are computer illiterate and are facing extreme problems in e-filing their income tax returns, therefore, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) should immediately defer the condition of e-filing of income tax returns to provide relief to businessmen. This was demanded by Muhammad Ishtiaq Qureshi, Vice President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry, while presiding over a meeting of ICCI Subcommittee on Income Tax. He said that according to a survey, Pakistan had 54 per cent literacy rate, while just 5 per cent traders had the computer facility due to which the 95 per cent traders were unable to e-file their income tax returns. Ishtiaq said the government must promote computer culture in the country by providing computers and Internet facility to people at affordable rates because forcing them for e-filing without facilitating them was highly unjustified. He said levy of sales tax and other taxes on computers had made these machines highly costly for general public. He called upon the FBR to arrange training programmes on e-filing system for traders so that they could get better awareness of this latest technology and appealed to Federal Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin and Chairman FBR Sohail Ahmed to defer the condition of e-filing for traders till the time they became well-conversant with this system. Ishtiaq also stressed for the need of extending last date of filing income tax returns by one month because majority of traders could not prepare income tax returns due to engagements in Ramazan and Eid holidays, as extension in last date would greatly facilitate them in filing their returns.
